Doug Jones Beats Out Alleged Sex Criminal Roy Moore
In a year of hopelessness, we’ve got to take our good news where we can get it, and I have some incredibly good news: a pedophile did not win a race for the senate. I mean it was close — Alabama almost elected an alleged pedophile to the Senate, but guess what folks, they did no such thing, and I think that’s pretty cool in my book!
In case you have no idea what I’m talking about — and how could you have no idea what I’m talking about, honest to goodness — Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for the Alabama special election lost to Democrat Doug Jones — the first democratic win for Senator in Alabama since 1997, and a very big get for the famously red state. Also a big deal, Alabama didn’t elect a pedophile. Oh, my God. Not just a pedophile, but a pedophile who endorsed American slavery and was overall a homophobic creep. A homophobic creep who preyed on young girls and got banned from a mall for doing so.
But for the most part, this is a small sigh of relief. Until November, 9th, 2017, I don’t think anyone in American thought someone with so many credible accusations (and a recorded Hollywood Access admittance) could be elected to any office — hell, we didn’t think a person like that could be allowed into normal society. Then, Donald Trump won and Nazis marched on Charlottesville and everything went to trash. However — that was a weird Russia influenced election, so maybe inhuman monsters can’t actually win unless there’s an equally inhuman amount of cheating.
Anyway, Twitter came out to celebrate this win.
Social media is also thanking black women for the win — as 98% of black women voted for Doug Jones. Alternately, 72% of white men voted for Roy Moore which is like — guys. What the heck? 93% of black men voted for Doug Jones which is awesome, and 63% of white women voted for Roy Moore. And, many are pointing out — what has society done for black women to pay them back? Come on society! Anyway, here are some tweets on that.
What do you think though? Are you excited certain criminals aren’t going to become senators? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
